7. "when you deny yourself something you need"

when you deny yourself something you need 
       and desperately want
style your hair with gel or mousse or what 
       have you, make sure it’s clean
and combed, unless your jam is mussed-up, 
       or maybe both a bit,
like mine, friend, which is arrived at via 
       products made by, I’m sorry,
axe, and be sure your pores are clean your nose 
       is powdered etc
and no moaning, remember, no letting on how 
       deprived you feel,
no dropped hints even, like sorry I’m low energy 
       I’m a little tuckered out
just cuz, oh it doesn’t matter, for then people will be 
       all oh yes good for you
and that’ll be all the good for you and it’s gone as 
       soon as they’re gone from
your presence, which means gone, and 
       remember it’s when not if
